Pros

Good Pay and commission if you hit a 3% month. Must make a minimum sales goal to be successful. Entry level pay, but commission is good.

Cons

You never get any weekends off. You work all holidays, except Christmas, and Thanksgiving.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

leadership is okay depending on who the manager is. You must sell sell sell

    Pros

    DISCOUNT!!

    Umm.... did i say discount?

    Great hours! .. oh wait, thats wrong, nevermind.

    Cons

    Hours, but it is retail so what do you expect.

    Close quarters when there is drama in the workplace.

    poor in-store management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop letting people walk all over each other and keep "personal life" conversations to a minimal. You MANAGE a store, so do just that. Everyone has the potential to be a great employee, but only YOU have the ability to shape them into what you need them to be for your team.

    Pros

    About the best retail job you can have, good compensation, benefits, employee discount, feedback. Promotions were not hard to get, if you wanted them. Company had very reasonable policies and warranties for customer, so much fewer problem customers than most places.

    Cons

    Retail, so horrible hours. Salary increases were a joke unless you took a promotion, unstable hours, stressful during the Christmas season.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize that your company got where it is by providing the customer with the highest level of satisfaction and do not ruin this by cheaping everything out while there is an temporary economic downturn. If the level of service, warranties, or quality goes down, people are going to shop somewhere cheaper (and there are many places that are).
